Fox News Channel host Geraldo Rivera said last night he will set up a legal defense fund for Diane Wilson, a co-founder of the terrorist support group Code Pink who was arrested last week for disrupting a Senate hearing in a protest about the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Wilson stood up at a hearing of the Senate Energy Committee and doused herself with simulated oil to protest the stance by Sen. Lisa Murkowski (R-AK) on the oil industry.
Rivera made the offer to set up a legal defense fund for Wilson last night when she appeared on his Fox News Channel show. Even though Code Pink put out a statement claiming responsibility for Wilson's protest, Rivera did not mention she was a co-founder of the terrorist support group.
Several years ago, Wilson was involved in a plot to kidnap then Attorney General Alberto Gonzales at the National Press Club in Washington, D.C.
From the Washington Post:
Diane Wilson comes over to talk about her morning at the Gonzales breakfast. Shes a former shrimper, an environmental activist and a fifth-generation resident of the tiny town of Seadrift, Tex.
The plan was to handcuff myself to Gonzales, Wilson says. But security came around asking for her ticket and she figured shed get kicked out shortly, so under pretense of looking in her purse, she handcuffed herself to her chair.
They started jerking me and I was jerking the chair between us, she says. Finally, the handcuffs broke. Cheap pair, Wilson says. If shed had her other handcuffs with her, that wouldnt have happened.
Code Pink used to protest Fox News, but over the past few years Fox News has made Code Pink frequent guests on shows like the O'Reilly Factor.
Code Pink bills itself as being antiwar, but it funds terrorists like Hamas and works with state sponsors of terrorism against the United States, Israel and Iraq, however Fox News has never reported the real nature of Code Pink.
Right up his alley.
Riviera is a putz.
Does anyone watch Geraldo? Will anyone contribute to this defense fund except Geraldo and Code Pink members? Inquiring minds want to know...
WASHINGTON (CNN) -- The U.S. military said Monday that Fox News Channel Correspondent Geraldo Rivera was being expelled from Iraq for divulging details of a future military operation, though later in the day a Central
Code Pink / Geraldo Rivera... what’s the difference?
one again Jerrialdo exposes himself as the a$$hole he is....
And then will Jerry Rivers be promoting his Communist aiding and abetting Fund on “conservative” Fox News.
Fair and Balanced dontcha know....
By doing this, he strips away the final vestage of being an “objective” reporter. If there was any doubt about his leanings and loyalties, this answers those questions. FNC should fire him on the spot.
Geraldo is as dumb as he is ugly.
Right up his alley.
With a cattle prod!
Well, Jerry, you just go right ahead. I have better things to do with my money, but feel free to waste yours any way you want.
The saddest part of this article is that it was “simulated oil”.
Hmmm... this is politically "taking sides" in the news event.
Seems time for an email snowstorm for the Fox News management...
But just remember, Fox is a completely conservative outfit with NO liberal voices whatsoever.
I had the same thought while writing my post. Fair and Balanced (to me at least...) does not include promoting an anti-American agenda.
Yep! Just drained and still scalding HOT!
FOX should not be supportive of terrorists. They show their support by employing Geraldo.
